Cheslaw Milosz wrote Second Space, a slender volume of poetry in the tenth decade of his life when his body was frail but his mind was still lively, lucid and not without humor. Although he is reputed by a number of his peers to be the poetic voice of the twentieth century, and certainly he was unqestionably a man of letters, nevertheless, none of his poetry is pretentious or replete with literary allusions making it dificult for the average reader. Milosz shares with us the wisdom of a great man of great age. Milosz believed that poetry must be intelliglble and this volume so beautifully in so few words conveys Milosz' philoshphy, theololgy, and ithe idea of the ineffable gift of our existence
in this world and universe.
